ISO/IEC27001 helps get your information security in order. Here’s an overview of the biggest concrete benefits:
Working with an information security management system protects your critical data. You reduce the risk of your information being misused. And you avoid it being incorrect or not available on time.
Written operational procedures and a clear division of roles allow you to systematically detect and address vulnerabilities.
Customers are showing increasing interest in how you manage their data. By working with an information security management system, you put them at ease. That way, they'll continue to choose your organisation.
By failing to comply with relevant information security laws, you risk hefty fines. Also, loss of reputation and loss of customers can lead to serious financial damage.
Public sector? Private? Large or small? Every organisation, regardless of sector, can apply this standard in a way that meets their needs. Be sure to check out the complementary standard ISO/IEC 27009 for a sector-specific version.
Are you working to an internationally recognised ISO standard? Then your credibility gets a big boost across national borders.
As an added bonus, ISO/IEC 27001 helps you comply with regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), demonstrating operational excellence.
